Hotel II Sole provides a great base for exploring Tuscany. The hotel is next to the rail station (not that you can hear anything), it's a few minutes walk into town, the rooms have been newly refurbished and look great, and you could not wish for more friendly or helpful staff. If you are considering Empoli book here.

A fine place to stay in Empoli. Friendly staff, fine location across from the train station and within easy walking to the city center, and a room that was modern and clean. Good breakfast. Highly recommended!
